Blank template 502 error?

Trying to test Toast functionality with Ionic2, getting this for checking the blank template.
Blank worked well in the past

ionic start Toast blank --v2
 Dependency warning - for the CLI to run correctly,      
 it is highly recommended to install/upgrade the following:     

 Install ios-deploy to deploy iOS applications to devices.  `npm install -g ios-deploy` (may require sudo)
